Bariatric Services

If you're more than 100 pounds overweight, bariatric surgery can be the answer you're looking for to help lose the weight and maintain a healthier life. Holy Cross Hospital's Comprehensive Bariatric Services offer many different options and is the leader in obesity surgery, gastric bypass surgery and weight-loss surgery in South Florida. In fact, our surgeons have performed weight-loss surgery on more than 5,000 patients, helping them to lose more than 660,000 pounds combined.

Holy Cross Hospital is recognized by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). MBSAQIP--which is dedicated to promoting the delivery of bariatric surgical care with the highest levels of efficacy, efficiency and safety--reviewed every aspect of the program. To earn accreditation, Holy Cross underwent a series of site inspections during which all aspects of the program's surgical processes were closely examined and data on health outcomes was collected.

Our multi-disciplinary approach to successful long-term weight loss makes us unique. And our program medical director, Michael A. Perez, MD, makes us successful. We look forward to meeting you and making a positive change in your life.
